Black Desert's St Patrick's Day patch brought its own beer
It is written in The MMORPG Code that MMOs, especially those of foreign pedigree, must indulge our most silly faux holidays. I'm sure that's the case, else why would an upstanding game like Black Desert insert St Patrick's Day into your immersions?
Yes, today's patch sees not only the return of the dice-rolling Black Spirit's adventure and new craftables for the Dark Knight but also beer. The Cold Draft Beer event, to be exact.
"To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, all players will receive beer on 3/17. Please check your in-game mail on this date to find your delivery of beer!"
That's where I get all my beer for sure.
By the by, maintenance this morning was extended slightly for North American players and quite a bit for EU players; Kakao apologized for the extra downtime and told EU players that compensation is on the way, though everything is back up now.
We will be sending out compensation items to our EU players after we fix the server. https://t.co/iZTCadVOtq

And in still more Black Desert news, Kakao has extended the anniversary sale until Monday to ensure everyone can buy all the proper game packages following a glitch in the system. Game packages are currently 30%-50% off.
